The 1957 Chevy Van was known as the Chevy Forward Control. It was a light-duty commercial vehicle produced by Chevrolet from 1960 to 1964. The van was designed to maximize cargo space and had a unique cab-over-engine design, which allowed for a flat cargo area in the rear. The 1957 Chevy Van featured a 92-horsepower engine, a three-speed manual transmission, and a top speed of around 55 miles per hour. It was also available in a variety of body styles, including a panel van, window van, and a pickup truck. Today, the 1957 Chevy Van is a popular classic vehicle among collectors and enthusiasts.
